Book Description

Martin the Christmas Mouse is a heartwarming story for children, ages 4-8 years old. The book is filled with large beautiful illustrations, depicting the comings and goings of a very helpful little mouse.

Martin lives in a tiny house with his parents and younger sister, Maria. It is Christmas time and they’ve been decorating the inside of their tiny abode. Their little place is set inside a larger home, owned by Mr. Kingsley. This kind and gentle man has no idea that he shares his residence with the mice! Martin runs freely, throughout both places, helping his parents and always looking after Mr. Kingsley, who is forgetful and also cannot see as well as he used to. He often can’t remember where he'd left his glasses, how many slices of bread he’d put on his plate for lunch or where he’d placed his socks! Martin, is very happy to help the kind man. He, assists in tying up the laces on Mr. Kingsley's boots correctly, locates a lost Christmas tree ornament and fixes a bit of misplaced holly, on the stairs.
With the arrival of Mr. Kingsley's familyon Christmas Eve, they'd all started to prepare for the much anticipated visit from Santa Claus and his reindeer! The little mouse joined in with the celebrations, including the singing of Christmas Carols. When it was close to the midnight hour, he scurried back to his little home and tiny bed, not expecting any gifts at all. His mother had explained to him, that Santa Claus, only visits the children of the world. Christmas morning arrives and the whole mouse family is in for a huge surprise!

The moral to Martin’s story is that rewards are usually bestowed upon those who do good deeds for others, most often they arrive from an entirely unsuspected source.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sweet story! December 23, 2012
By Kyoko
Format:Kindle Edition
Just like the author's other book, Thomas and the Lily Pond, there is a lesson for kids in this book too!

I used to be a Montessori teacher. Children love animal stories and this book is also just right length, so even younger kids enjoy it!

The main character has such a lovely personality, I want all the children to be like him! I also love the illustrations.

I am a big fan of her books because there are always clear lessons in them. Her books are very appropriate to read for young children and those lessons stays in their heart.

I am excited for her next book!!

Martin the Mouse is a pretty good tale, albeit with a predictable ending. Basically it revolves around a mouse that helps out the blind old human man whose house the mouse's family is squatting in. He is always tempted to take bites out of the man's food or curl up in his socks but as the tale repeatedly says, he didn't. The mouse learns that the old man's grandkids and their families are coming over for Christmas and that Santa will be visiting them.

Although the story is pretty good, the illustrations are a bit average. If this ever gets turned into a physical picture book, which it's good enough to I'd imagine they'd go with a better artist.
